The Charleston Parks Conservancy is hosting "A Walk In The Parks" during the month of February. The community is invited to complete 26.2 miles worth of exercise in 28 days while learning more about Charleston’s beloved parks.
From February 1st to February 28th, sign into your event registration account to record your walk, run, or bike ride. Each time you record an activity, you will see your progress along the virtual route. Hit a milestone along the way to receive an email with additional information on a certain Charleston park.
There is no limit to the number of activities you can record during February, and no limit to the miles that can be recorded. In fact, the participant who logs the most miles during the event will receive a special prize.
Register at www.awalkintheparks.org for $35 per person. Participants are encouraged to create a customized peer-to-peer fundraising page and invite friends and family to support the Charleston Parks Conservancy’s work beautifying and maintaining parks in the City of Charleston.
Participants can exercise anywhere they choose (gym, neighborhood, beach), or they can try some of these park routes:
Cannon Park: 1 lap around the park = 0.2 miles
Colonial Lake: 1 lap around the park = 0.5 miles
Hampton Park: 1 lap around the park = 1.5 miles
Riley Waterfront Park: 1 lap around the park = 1 mile
